Do you remember when you first got your iPhone? If so, you’ll remember how everything ran at lightning speed. Apps took no time at all to action your requests. Plus, browsing the Internet was also quick and easy to do.
Today, you might be wondering whether you should splash out on a new model. You may have noticed that your device is about as fast as a snail these days. Plus, you may have even told your iPhone a few choice words because of delayed actions on it!
Few people have the money available to upgrade their iPhones on a bi-annual basis. Or even an annual one! Let’s face it: we have to pay premium money to use such a premium product. Stop right there if you think there’s nothing you can do! Why? Because I’m going to share with you some tips to supercharge your iPhone!
Don’t worry: the following tips don’t involve adapting its physical hardware in any way. What they do involve is a few simple changes to settings on your handset. Here are the tips you need to know:
What a weird thing to suggest, don’t you think? But, it’s actually a good way of resetting any app problems. Let me put it to you another way. When your PC or Mac starts misbehaving, you reboot it. Most of the time, it works as expected after a restart.
The Apple iPhone is just like any other computer. The only difference is, it’s in a compact form. Every so often, the iPhone will need a reboot to clear any app data stuck in memory. Go on, give it a try. It’ll take a few minutes of your time, sure. But, it’s a simple way to make your device operate more efficiently!
Upgrade the iOS software
The operating system on your iPhone is iOS. Every so often, Apple releases a new version of the OS to help improve device functionality. The trouble is, those updates can only take effect if you install them!
Why should you care about iOS? Well, you can’t always install the latest versions of apps you use on an old version of iOS. So, if some app developers have included some cool new features, you won’t benefit from them. Not unless you update your iOS version first, of course!
Head to Settings > General > Software Update to install the latest version of iOS.
Free up some storage space
Just like a computer, your iPhone uses some of your storage space for temporary data files. If you’ve got no free space on your iPhone, expect everything to slow down to a crawl!
I recommend clearing some storage space through the following ways:
- Delete any music and videos that you seldom listen to or watch;
- Delete old iCloud backup files;
- Delete any apps that you never use.
It might shock you to learn that you can free up quite a lot of space with those three simple strategies!
Clear your Safari cache
One final thing you can do is empty your Safari browsing cache and history. Doing so will not only free up some space, but it will speed up your web browsing too.
